Brodhead Optimists

Every Optimist Club was formed by everyday people who wanted to reach out to help youth and the community, and the Brodhead Optimist Club is no exception.  Our positive approach, our upbeat outlook, and our commitment to creating aFishing Derby more optimistic future for kids is what differentiates Optimist Clubs from any other volunteer opportunity.

Each club’s service activities are tailored to the needs of their community; what a club can do is limited only by the imagination and resources of its members. In Brodhead we sponsor youth programs such as the annual fishing derby and tri-star basketball competition.  We donate Highway clean-up crewdictionaries to all third graders each year, give books to all newborns, hold an annual essay contest for middle and high school students, donate gifts to needy children for the holidays, and lend financial support to numerous local and state youth programs.  Our local club has a special goal of assisting children with cancer and their families, and to that end has provided gas cards and meals for families as well as monetary assistance.

To finance the above activities the Club holds a number of fundraisers throughout the year.  It is throughClarissa Rueckert  essay winner this volunteerism that we make a difference in the lives of others.

You are cordially invited to check us out!  We gather for breakfast (optional) at 6:30 every Tuesday morning at the Java House in downtown Brodhead, with the meeting at 7 that features interesting speakers.  Everyone is welcome!

FFA Alumni

The Brodhead FFA Alumni started in 1976 with the main objective of helping support the Ag Education program in theBrodheadSchool District.  Today we still support the Ag program with money raised from the Ace Bolt and Nut sales, consignment auctions, Sportsmen's Night, and food stands.  Money raised has gone for scholarships to further students’ education, traveling to Washington Leadership Conference in DC, educational conferences throughout the State of Wisconsin, State and NationalFFA Conventions, judging events andFFA awards.  We purchased "My Caert" an internet program for the Ag teacher/instructor to have the most up to date information available with which to teach. FFA Alumni members have chaperoned students onFFA events and give their knowledge of life experiences and jobs.  TheFFA Alumni are also involved in supporting the community with donations to the Library building fund,EMS and Fire Departments, the July fireworks, and the canned food drive for the White Gift in Brodhead.  TheFFA Alumni is misunderstood regarding who can be a member.  You did not have to be aFFA member to be anFFA Alumni member, just someone who wants to help keep Agriculture Education in our schools.

In February the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction reported that in 2012, theWisconsingraduation rate was 85.7%. Students taking three or more Ag Education courses in high school had a 97.0% graduation rate!

The FFA Alumni really believe that the Ag departments in Brodhead and throughout the country have developed a comprehensive structure that includes areas such as: Biotechnology, Veterinary Science, Alternative Energy, Food Science, Horticulture, Landscaping, and Student Leadership skills.  With such a variety, students are being prepared for the 21st Century.
